    Third of an acre plant lovers oasis reinvented in 2010 on a very flat sandy site with fields on two sides giving good views across the valley. A summerhouse and plenty of seating around the garden to sit and relax and enjoy delicious homemade cakes with your tea or coffee. The borders are packed with herbaceous perennials and shrubs for all year round interest with emphasis on drought and wind tolerance as we are on top of a small Essex hill which can be very dry during the summer months. There are approximately 40 different varieties of hemerocallis, chosen to flower at different times, as well as numerous Iris, hostas, shrub roses, ferns and grasses, followed by Michaelmas daisies and sedums for late summer interest. Approximately 40 new trees planted around the garden. A medium vegetable garden provides year round crops. Plants for sale will have been propagated from plants currently growing in the garden.
